***Photo is representative and NOT necessarily the one you will receive***
Even though many of these are identical to the Apple branded drives, because they didn’t originally come inside a Macintosh and have an Apple label, Apple’s hard drive utilities refuse to work with them. *These drives have been formatted with Silverlining, FWB Hard Disk Toolkit, or modifications of Apple’s HD SC Setup or Drive Setup.* What that means is that they should work as a startup drive inside or outside of your Mac. **Jumper and termination may need to be set or changed for internal or external use.** Jumpers and termination specs for most drives can be found at stason.org.
All have been wiped, sanitized* and thoroughly tested on a Mac. Any software on any drive is not part of the sale – you are simply purchasing a hard drive from me. *In some cases the sanitized contents were retained and reinstalled as pre-prep for another Mac or it could mean loaded from scratch with partitions and a bunch of stuff installed – I have a few that came in that way.

Add or replace a Zip Drive in your Mac!

Available in blue or white (Epson model), this Zip Drive will organize your files using removable 100MB disks (not included) that are slightly larger than a 3.5″ floppy disk in size.

You can even share or transfer files between Macs, or between a Mac and an Apple IIGS. The Apple IIGS does not need drivers, Later Mac systems, such as OS 9 have the drivers built in to the operating system, but earlier OS’s such as System 6 or 7 will need Zip drivers. Early drivers can be found at the Mac Driver Museum: http://www.macdrivermuseum.net/disk.shtml
Zip Drives are available without the SCSI cable and power supply if you are replacing a bad drive.
Zip Disk(s) are not included but are available here.
